The Little Things We've Loved This Week

It's been a busy little week, but a lovely one, and there's been plenty of opportunity to find lots of little gems amongst the madness... my little loves for this week...

I read this fabulous little book called "The Debutante" by Kathleen Tessaro which was very Mitfordesque (if you don't know anything about the Mitford sisters, you HAVE to google them! Probably the most fascinating family to have ever existed!) I really, really enjoyed it from the first page, and it had a few interesting turns which always makes for good reading. I'm now working my way through "Sisters of the East End" by Helen Batten which is good, but nowhere near as absorbing as its "Call the Midwife" counterparts... I'm determined to finish it, but its definitely not a page turner in the way "The Debutante" was...

I watched Gogglebox for the first time last weekend, and giggled the whole way through. How can it be so funny to watch other people watching television?! Literally made me laugh out loud!

This week I have spent the week listening to nursery rhymes and action songs. The girls are currently loving doing their own "show" which involves them acting out all their personal faves, so I'm not getting a lot of listening time right now!

I relaunched my little business which is very exciting, so I've been busy crafting away! This week I've been working on a couple of little commissions which has been fun and a bit different to my normal stock. I'd love it if you'd pop over to my Facebook Page and give it a like (only if you actually DO like the stuff of course!)

This is the category I always fail at, because to be honest? I can't really remember. Getting two little girls dressed is busy enough, and at the moment, I'm getting up ten minutes before them and throwing on the first thing I find in the wardrobe. Yup. I am a fashion queen... Or not. I AM enjoying wearing my boots again though. After a whole season apart from each other, we're reacquainting ourselves and I'm thoroughly happy to be doing so!

And Finally...
My lovely mother-in-law is over from Norway this week so we've been having lots of fun and the girls have been having a whale of a time. This weekend is going to be REALLY busy - it involves a family get-together, baby shower, Naming Day and Tutoring sessions... Wish me luck!
